Friend Makin’ Mondays: Dating

It’s Monday, and you know what that means! It’s time for Friend Makin’ Mondays, but before that, I just have to say that I had a fantastic weekend.  The fun started Friday when Cal and I met in the middle to spend several hours with our friend, Anne and her family.  We sat by their pool and enjoyed drinks and good company.  Then Anne, the embroidery goddess who made adorable bags for me, helped me create a unique gift for a friend’s wedding shower. Okay, I picked out the towels, and she did all of the work.  🙂  Aren’t they pretty?!  Anne did an amazing job making these towels special! 🙂

 

Cal and I spent some quality time together too.  We ate lunch at my favorite local Thai restaurant, spent time at the mall, watched an awesome football game and cooked a late dinner featuring chicken and fresh green beans.  Being around him makes me feel good, and I like where we are (and where we’re headed) which leads me to this week’s topic – Dating.

 

If you’ve taken part in FMM then you know the rules. If you’re new, please take a moment to answer this week’s question on your own blog then add your link in the comments section here at: www.alltheweigh.com so we can all see your FMM questions and answers. Please invite your blog readers to add their links here too so everyone has to opportunity to be seen. The idea is to connect with other awesome bloggers so take a moment to post your own FMM post and comment on a couple of other posts. Now it’s time for this week’s topic!

FMM: Dating

 

 

  1. What is your current relationship status? (Be as specific as you’d like to be!) Dating…not exclusively though I have no interest in dating anyone else at this point, and it seems like the feeling is mutual.
  2. List a few qualities that you look for in a significant other…tall, brilliant and really nice to me…
  3. If you could choose to date one character in TV or film, who would you choose?  And which characteristics are most appealing?   I’m attracted to guys like Harvey from Suits on USA.  He’s tough and brilliant and sexy.  Also, Anderson Cooper, if you’re reading this, I’ll marry you.  Just saying…
  4. How long should you date before becoming exclusive?  I don’t think there’s one right answer.  I think it depends on the people dating…Who cares what anyone else thinks?
  5. What are your thoughts on public displays of affection? I like to hold hands and sneak a kiss here and there, but I think the private stuff should stay private most of the time.
  6. Do you kiss on the first date? Sometimes, but it’s not a requirement.
  7. Biggest turn-off? Hairy backs.  Yuck…
  8. What’s the first thing you notice about the opposite sex?  I like ’em tall and dark haired…I want to feel safe when I’m with him.
  9. How long do you/did you wait before becoming intimate? I don’t think there’s one right answer here either…And as fun as it would be to talk about it online, I think I won’t. Ha…
  10. Describe your dream date.  My dream date would be a picnic in the park or by the water with fresh sandwiches or wine and cheese on a big blanket.  (Maybe I should keep one in my car just in case. 😉
Now it’s your turn to answer this week’s questions! Don’t forget to come back and link up in the comments.

    I’m so, so glad I’m not in the dating scene any more… I’m too out of practice and too impatient! Plus most of the good ones seem to be gone….

      I don’t believe (for obvious reasons) that all of the good ones are gone…at least, I hope not! 🙂

    Hi Kenlie,

    Have been a silent reader on your blog for some time now, just want to say that it’s nice to read all the fun things that you and Cal are doing together, and you sound really happy and bubbly…always a good thing! I am happy for you! 🙂

    I have no blog (yet), so no FMM for me, but I am loving the topic, and I am sure everyone’s all tingly writing and reading all the answers! Perhaps just a note on the dream date – I think mine would be one where location, food, setting, it all wouldn’t matter – it would be a wonderful evening where we would mutually know the little things we could do that would totally make each of us happy, and that it would be as much a dream date for me as it would be for him… 🙂

    Don’t know if that last comment went through or not. If so, this is embarrassing. Haha. First timer here. It was fun.
